So should we then understand that we have a general and a particular definition of Islaam?


Yes, we do have a definition of Islaam in the general sense as well as a definition in the particular sense when it is stated in association with Eemaan as was mentioned in the hadeeth of the Prophet () [reported by ‘Umar ibn al- Khattaab] and in the two aayaat mentioned earlier [soorat al- Hujuraat, 14; and soorat ath-Thaariyaat, 35-36].
